It’s on one of the most competitive strips of Vietnamese restaurants in Sydney’s inner west, but it’s quickly become one of the most popular. The main attraction at Marrickville’s Pho Quyen Vietnamese Restaurant is the pho. The menu provides a detailed outline of its journey, from northern Vietnamese tradition to the sourcing of fresh, quality local Sydney ingredients and the loving 24-hour slow-cooking process when 12 spices and fresh herbs lend aromas and complex flavours to Pho Quyen’s delicious broth, which then has beef, chicken, pork, seafood or vegetarian finishing touches. If you’re not in the mood for a really good pho, Pho Quyen have you covered with plenty of other options – the boneless stuffed chicken wings and Vietnamese-style quail are always popular – and they accommodate for different dietary requirements and preferences. You’ll find Pho Quyen among Illawarra Road’s strip of Vietnamese restaurants, just before the corner with Petersham Road, in Marrickville.
